We are very proud to announced that here, in Portage Park Dental we are using laser- WaterLase! It is a great addition to our practice! Laser dentistry is a very effective way to perform many pain-free procedures with fever shots, less need for anesthesia, less use of the drill and fever numb lips. Additionally, using laser for gum procedures reduces bleeding, post-operative pain, swelling and the need for pain medication in many cases.
Laser dentists are able to remove tooth decay , bone and gum tissue precisely while leaving surrounding areas unaffected. This conserves and allows you to keep more of the healthy tooth structure.
High speed drills can cause hairline cracks and fractures in the teeth that eventually lead to future dental problems. Laser reduces damage to healthy portions of the tooth and minimizes trauma.
Cavity preparations with laser can increase bond strength of tooth-colored restoration resulting in longer lasting fillings.
Since you often do not need shots or anesthesia, our laser dentist can perform cavity preps in all areas of the mouth in just one visit. This technology also gives our laser dentists the ability to painlessly perform many procedures that were previously referred to specialists.
